Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and Sky have announced plans to create a joint-venture company to bring a broad mix of downloadable content to the PSP, ranging from movies and sports to high profile TV shows like Lost and Weeds. The content can be downloaded via Wi-Fi or PC but there’s no news yet on pricing. That’s right, this is Sky after all so no freebies here. According to the press release:
“The Joint Venture company, with equal Board level representation from Sky and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe will draw on the unrivalled entertainment aggregation expertise and technical leadership of SKY, and the handheld entertainment knowledge and brand power of PlayStation. The company will establish PSP and the new ground breaking video download service as the natural partners for those seeking the ultimate choice of portable entertainment content.”
Could this be the money-spinning movie success that the annoying, and doomed, UMD movie format wasn’t?
